Book Synopsis If you are hanging from a trapeze
And up sneaks a camel with bony knees,
Remember this rule, if you please--
Never talk to strangers.
This book brilliantly highlights situations that children will find themselves in--whether they're at home and the doorbell rings, or playing in the park, or mailing a letter on their street--and tells them what to do if a stranger (always portrayed as a large animal, such as a rhino) approaches. Colorful, '60s-style "psychedelic" artwork and witty, lively rhyme clearly spell out a message about safety that empowers kids, and that has never been more relevant.
